Bollywood Khans and their Hindu wives

Wednesday, 28 November 2012

From a rich girl marrying a poor boy to the modern eras’ Ishaqzaade’ who are ready to die in each others arms rather than getting separated in the name of religion, these love sagas are endless. Here's a look at the real life ‘Ishaqzaade’ of Bollywood, who married outside their religion and are living happily ever after.

1. Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Chhibber
Nobody comes close to our King Khan when it comes to his real life romance with wife Gauri. The actor won Gauri’s heart, but just like a typical 90s masala film had the whole family ‘brigade‘of Gauri, against their marriage. But at last, this Dilwala took the Dulhaniya away and are now a blissfully married couple.

2. Irrfan Khan and Sutapa Sikdar
Parent of two, Irfan and Sutapa have been married for more than a decade now. Their love story began in Delhi during their days in NSD (National School of Drama).
3. Fardeen Khan and Natasha Madhvani
Once a heartthrob of many girls, Fardeen Khan married his childhood love Natasha Madhvani in a typical grand ‘Khan’ style. Natasha is daughter of yesteryear actress Mumtaz and Fardeen, as all know, is a son of late veteran actor Firoz Khan. This marriage has a ‘Picture Perfect’ plot of how children of onscreen lovers (Mumtaz-Firoz) fall in love with each other in real life.
4. Zayed Khan and Malaika Parekh
Moving on the footsteps of his cousin Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, also married his high school love Malaika. Zayed was more than happy to say ‘Mai Hoon Na’ to Malika’s parents, when they began looking for a guy for her.
5. Sohail Khan and Seema Sachdev
A Muslim guy meets a Hindu Girl, but their families refuse to this marriage. What Next? Yes, straight out of a Hindi film, they elope! This is exactly what Sohail did; he eloped with his love Seema apparently on the day when his directorial debut ‘Pyaar Kiya to Darna’ starring his brother Salman Khan got released.

6. Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora
Unlike Sohail, Arbaaz did not elope with Malaika, rather, like an obedient son-in-law agreed to Malaika's mom and had a Church wedding with his girl.
7. Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor
I know I get no eyebrows up for mentioning this one. This Bollywood Shaadi was like a National Issue in our country about which everybody knows, all thanks to Media! So, not a word more on this Couple, Let’s move forward.
8.Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao
Love for Cinema is what brought Mr. Perfectionist close to his wife Kiran Rao and his decision of 'second' marriage seems to be getting ‘Perfect’ results for this couple.
9. Imran Khan and Avantika Malik
They lived together in Los Angeles (when Imran was taking formal acting training), they had known each other for 10 long years and since then nothing has changed between the two of them. Oh yes, one thing they are now happily married.
10. Md.Azharuddin and Sangeeta Bijlani
When stories of Mohammad Azharuddin seeing Sangeeta Bijlani made news in 1994, people were shocked. He was married to Naureen and Sangeeta was dating Salman Khan. The two denied their affair vehemently. However, in 1996, Azharuddin divorced his wife and married Sangeeta. (TOI Photo) (BCCL)
11. Sanjay Dutt and Manyata
Actor Sanjay Dutt married Manyata according to Hindu rituals in the presence of family and friends in Mumbai. For both of them it was their third marriage. Manyata’s original name was Dilhaaz Shaikh. She too has been married and divorced three times in the past. But no matter what opposition he gets from the family the happy look on Sanjay Dutt’s face was not to be missed. And we do wish the happy couple a successful marriage this time. (Reuters Photo)
